2012 Arroyo Arts Collective Discovery Tour

Paper Doll Press, 5101 Monte Vista St., Los Angeles, CA 90042 

The Yale House, Heritage Square Museum, Highland Park

The Arroyo Seco Historic Parkway was built in 1940 and was nationally recognized as one of the most significant roadways in the 20th century. It is one of California's first and only state historic parkways, and was considered to be a model for Los Angeles freeway systems. The  Arroyo Seco was the center for the Arts andCrafts Movement on the West Coast and is one of four internationally recognized centers of the movement in America.

You can explore the Arroyo Seco and its historical and cultural richness by participating in the 20th Annual Self Guided Tour, where you can meet more than 100 artists in the Arroyo and in surrounding neighborhoods.  The Discovery Tour is made possible by the Arroyo Arts Collective; a grass-roots community based organization of artists, poets, musicians, crafts-persons and supporters of the creative community in North East Los Angeles.  The mission of the Arroyo Arts Collective is to develop and present creative events that educate and expand the audience for culture while creating an awareness of the creative vitality that exists in northeast Los Angeles.
